I want to copy some text from a note pad file to a writer file, and then to an e-mail but it has line breaks in it so it doesn't format properly. Is there an easier way than reading through the whole thing and removing them one at a time?

Are they line breaks or paragraphs? If you turn on View | Formatting Marks or Ctrl+F10 do they look like ¶ (paragraph marker) or ↲ (new line)? Please either edit your answer or make a comment to reply; don't add a new answer that isn't an answer to your question.
